Nice one, Gary. You were right, by the way, to query the BBC credit on Tiswas. It was, of course, on ITV!!!
Between us, Myke, Tricky and myself have several of the Steve Gray line-up peformances listed, plus the Francis Monkman line-up performances of Toccata on Top of the Pops and Musiklaaden. I am fairly sure that either of these two gentlemen will be able to do copies for you if you ask them nicely enough!!!
Seriously, we seem to be into sharing on this forum, so I feel sure that something can be arranged. There are also audio recordings of the Rhythm on 2 programmes doing the rounds. I don't have a means to copy old videos or DVDs at the moment, I'm afraid, otherwise I would be more than happy to do so. I did, however, lend some old betamax recordings to, I think, Tricky and Myke and they copied them for me.

Pa28Jockey, As Chris kindly mentions I have four DVD's available, three concerts;- 1 of Westminster Abbey in stereo; Drury Lane Xmas 1983; and Night Music. Plus a collection of video excerpts from various shows compiled on one DVD, courtesy of Chris and Tricky lending me their Betamax tapes for archiving. I also keep a collection of mp3 files, that now span more than one CD. If you want any of these, get in touch by e-mail at the following address;-
